Have you checked out the projects "On Our Radar"?
On Our Radar is a searchable, public database featuring nearly 400 noteworthy projects that advanced to the second or third phase of last year’s highly competitive grant round for Film/Video and Visual Arts projects. Although the featured projects were not ultimately funded, we feel they are projects to watch. This site will be online through August 31, 2012.
Through On Our Radar, Creative Capital hopes these projects can find new support and generate collaborative opportunities. This initiative opens up the valuable opportunity for discovery to the larger community of arts professionals, other artists and funders. During each grant round, a wealth of exciting artists' projects emerge, but Creative Capital is only able to fund a small percentage of the applicants each year.
A new On Our Radar site will be rolling up after each grant round, and projects in Emerging Fields, Literature and Performing Arts will be posted in Spring 2013.
